One Small Thing You Can Do

Go to Wikimedia's PeopleFinder wiki and sign up to help enter data for a central lost/found/missing persons database. It really doesn't take very long to enter a block of data, and it's one little thing each of us can do to make a practical difference in the situations of displaced families.

A telling thing: driving by the local State Trooper barracks today, I couldn't help but notice that while the Vermont state flag had been lowered to half-mast, the national flag had not. After 9/11, the flags were kept at half-mast for a month... why, you'd almost think the federal government doesn't give a rat's ass about a whole city wiped off the map.
